Baked Idaho Anyone?

My goodness but it's hot here today!!!! 100 degrees F. I saw that it was 82 degrees at 8 this morning, so I knew it was gonna be a scorcher. I've had the air conditioner on ever since.

It was hot yesterday too. About 91 degrees here. It's times like these that I find myself thinking:
"If there's a heaven, the man who invented the air conditioner deserves to be there."

I hope he at least got rich for his efforts.

I don't go out when it's this hot, nor do I do much knitting. I wilt like lettuce, so I've been 'playing'. I've got laundry to do, but decided to wait for the new dryer.

So, first thing I did was upload camping trip pictures to the Flickr Album. You'll find them in the set labeled "Indian Creek Camping".

Yesterday I got a free download of BeadCreator Pro, a bead pattern drawing program. It's an older version than what's on the market now, which is probably why they're giving it away free. A marketing ploy is what you'd call it. Get the old version, fall in love with it, then have to buy the upgrade. Anyway, I've been playing with it a bit. It's complicated, as bead design programs go-so I'm not sure if I like it. But eventually I'll get it figured out. I've created a new bead knitting pattern and maybe a bead crochet rope pattern. I won't know for sure if I know what I'm doing or not until I've actually tried making the rope.

This heat wave will continue for a few more days, then it's supposed to cool down a bit. We have entered the Dog Days of Summer. I guess I should enjoy it while I can cos winter is not far away now.

Have a good one.
